Epiphanic Catharsis

The so-called cool kids were mean
gnawed away at my self-esteem
They made up excuses to bait
and spread rumors twisted with hate

My desire to fit in was fleeting
I should have seen through their sheeting
was dubbed public enemy uncool
and threatened with beatings at school

Now that I’m grown, I can see
they turned out no better than me
Although when our lives rearranged
I learned and they haven’t changed

So I wasn’t cursed, I was blessed
to fall in with a dicier mess
We each had our day with the popular games
now none of us remembers their names
